Nigel Farage pushed by Global Media.
It has been reported that Nigel Farage was pushed out by Global Media following a push back from fellow colleagues after his remarks about the BLM campaigners.
Nigel Farage appeared on Good Morning Britain on Tuesday where he compared Black lives matter to the Taliban. He went onto criticising the action taken to remove statues of historical British figures.
A black staffer has told the Huffington Post
that “many Global staff members want Farage out”.
The staffer said: “The man is vile and racist. I’m upset he’s working on a station across the corridor from the UK’s biggest Black music station and he’s allowed to say those comments on air.”
There does appear to be a bias to this as they do not stop with Nigel Farage. There are calls for presenter Nick Ferrari to also be sacked from LBC with another unnamed source saying
I’m very happy to see he has stepped down, I believe Nick Ferrari should do the exact same thing too. I also hope they start hiring more presenters of colour and I hope someone of colour will fill his spot,” the source added.
LBC announced the followuing on Twitter.
Nigel Farage’s contract with LBC is up very shortly and, following discussions with him,
Nigel is stepping down from LBC with immediate effect,” the statement read.
We thank Nigel for the enormous contribution he has made to LBC and wish him well.
